Before today I hadn’t heard of N3K4.com, but it’s looks pretty good and seems to have posted some good stuff in its time. In particular they’ve put up a mix that Joker did for 1xtra a couple of weeks back. It’s filled with saccharine, purple-goodness and a couple of unreleased dubs from Joker and Silkie. Plus it ends with that great remix of SMD’s ‘Cruel Intentions’, which you can get here

PURRRRRRRP

Speaking of new sites, everyone should head over to RuckusRuckusRuckus and check out my man Joe. There’s a snippet of a mix that he did up-in-the-VIP at the Warp20 event in Sheffield. Pity he didn’t record the bit where he played a bunch of bassline tracks while some crazy drunk chick lost her shit. Anyway, it’s still an excellent mix, and you’ll get similar monthly updates for your education. So subscribe!

Back on it…

I haven’t posted for ages. I’ve been busy doing stuff like this.┬áBut, it’s all back on now. I could go back over all the stuff I missed but I’ve lost the charger for my computer so I haven’t got long.

The Fader / NME have posted up a remix of Simian Mobile Disco’s track ‘Cruel Intentions Ft. Beth Ditto’ by none other than the king of the Bristol dubstep scene, Joker. Like everything that he lends his hand to these days, the remix is flashy, hard hitting and guaranteed to get your head nodding. Grab it over at The Fader

Glasgow’s best club night, Numbers, seems to be making more moves towards becoming a world-dominating record label. The latest signing comes in the form of Taz Buckfaster, a 26 year old Glasgow native who seems to be following in Joker’s footsteps. Tracks of his have been knocking around on various Wireblock/Numbers mixes for a while now, but there’s a great interview over at Sonic Router that finally puts a face to the music. As if that’s not enough, he’s provided a mix crammed with original dubs. Interview HERE and mix HERE

Finally, shout out to Joe Ruckus for everything this weekend. READ HIS BLOG.
